The Big Island Substance Abuse Council (BISAC) hosted one of its annual events in Na’alehu. The Ka’u Splash Bash, is an event which celebrated community, promoted positive messages, and provided opportunities to enhance family relationships.
Over 40 community organizations participated in providing the community with resources and family-fun activities. In true style, BISAC had carnival games, entertainment, massive water slides, prom dress distribution, a water balloon battle of over 4000 balloons, and closed the event with a Bubblicious Foam Fest. Hundreds of individuals took part in the event.
BISAC through its events and long standing positive reputation in the community continues to inspire positive changes and helps individuals and families reclaim their lives. “This event was just amazing. To see the community come together in celebration of their families while learning positive messages, made for a very successful event” says BISAC’s CEO, Dr. Hannah Preston-Pita. “We are already gearing up and taking Splash Bash to Kona in October, so come out and join us.”
Since 1964, BISAC has been inspiring individuals and families to reclaim and enrich their lives in the wake of the ravages of substance abuse and mental health. They offer a continuum of services that are culturally appropriate and aligned with the ever-changing behavioral health field.
